Endocrinology Fellowship Training- Harbor-UCLA Medical Center
Based on research interests and NRMP matching, Endocrinology Fellows will match to either the Harbor-UCLA or City of Hope site where they will receive the majority of their training. All trainees will be assigned clinical rotations at both institutions. This type of curriculum will expose Fellows to a wider range of endocrine disciplines. Upon completion of the program, endocrine Fellows are expected to be fully trained in the treatment and management of endocrinology-related diseases and disorders.
